With an increase over the last few weeks of over 20% of people being notified by NHS track and trace, it’s no surprise that businesses all over the UK are struggling with staffing. Not only that, but the pandemic prompted many foreign workers to return home to wait things out and it’s unsure how many of these families and individuals will choose to return. This has put tremendous strain on the labour market, making it incredibly difficult for businesses to operate at their expected capacity.

It’s also reported that furlough has put the labour market into suspended animation, slowing things down further. Couple that with the concern that further lockdowns and focus on ‘keyworkers’ only, and it seems almost logical that these job roles have fallen out of favour with prospective candidates. The past year has been straining enough for families emotionally and financially and with people keen to return to pre-pandemic times, a career change into what is deemed as a keyworker role might provide more security.
